term. when barack obama was elected the first time, they summed it up with this head line. "black man given nation's worst job." that was for the start of his first term. might be more apt for second term. the second term is when the job turns out to be a difficult job for presidents. if you go back to woodrow wilson in his second term trying to join the league of nations, that was pretty much the end of wilson. that was his second term. when it was truman in his second term during the korean war, he fired general mcarthur. the country responded by throwing parades for the general who got fired. and harry truman left office with approval ratings that dick cheney would kill for, but for everyone else would see that as a disaster. second terms are almost always seen as a disaster, then at least when the big disappointments happen and often the failures. when the soviet union beat us, when the soviet union beat the united states to put the first space satellite into orbit, when no nation had put something like that -- up in space and had it stick there and the soviets did it first with s
in gaza in just a couple of minutes. but i'm also thankful tonight to be able to report that the election has finally concluded in arizona, where it took them 14 days to count votes and announce the results this year. in the end, it turns out that all three competitive congressional races in that state went to the democrats. but the competitive u.s. senate race for republican jon kyl's old seat, that seat stayed republican. and yes, the county sheriff who did the whole taxpayer-funded stunt about having his cold case posse uncover the fraud of president obama's birth certificate, that sheriff did get re-elected, barely. last time he won by a 13-point landslide. this time he won by much less than that, but did get re-elected. and that public publicity-hungry arizona sheriff is not the only arizona official who has lately been fixated on the president's birth certificate. the arizona secretary of state this year threatened to keep president obama off the ballot in arizona for this year's election. because, you know, kenya, or whatever. and because that is the record of arizona's secretary o
reelection in two years. you can read too much into this election. this was not a mandate. this was a popular vote to% election, even electoral votes when he looked at the states, separated by 2%, 3%, 4%. this was not some kind of major reelection when like reagan had, like even clnton had. clinton might think, won by 8%, reagan nine, ten, 11%. there is no real mandate here. so i can't see the republicans getting too overwhelmed by these ads. the president's new popularity numbers just came out. it's 51 percent. that is a pretty small jump for a guy you just won an election. tom: t only people are really concerned, two years from now there is another whole house -- house members that will be reelected. >> and they have to go back to district that elected them to lower taxes. so you go back to that district. you promise you'll never vote for a tax increase. taxes go up. tom: two years later. >> and membersof congress think about themselves and their reelection. tom: let me ask you bout retail. on the cusp of thanksgiving, but friday coming up. all kinds of issues. you are telling me before we
to do -- people at headquarters, they show up at election night, unless the guy or woman loses and they get excited about the guy near election night because they want a job. they want something. they want to be loved by the winner. then they treat the guy like a ticket at off-track betting on the floor you're stomping around on. so what happened here? is that the best case against the case being made against the republican party? it's a bunch of people just not loyal? that's what he's saying. >> absolutely, chris. look, i've been through this time and time again, that people are measuring the drapes before the first debate ends, especially if the nominee does a very good job. >> now they're measuring the crepe. >> true. mitt romney unfortunately never had any -- a loyal following, if you will, except for the folks in boston. the conservatives never trusted him. they didn't even trust him when he got the republican nomination back in the spring of this year. the point is these individuals are opportunists, both on the republican side and also on the democratic side. they don't
is going on? >>guest: republicans lost the election. it was about tax policy. most republicans want to get a deal they have to give something up. they will want something in run so if they bend on taxes they will want an entitlement reform, so, that is the rub, but, republicans do not want to raise the rates with you they want to eliminate the tax loopholes and bay down the debt. that would break grover's pledge. >>neil: i have the pledge, something that a lot of the guys signed on to, quite a few but what stands out is the second part of the pledge, you oppose any elimination of deductions and credits unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates. it is the tax rate stuff that will not help. what do we make of either this moment of reality, this post election come to whoever moment or what? >>guest: the democrats have been frustrated with the g.o.p.'s sticking to the pledge and now, president obama won a second term, it is very important that any deal they sign off on would break part of the pledge. i don't think the democrats will sign off on anything that doesn't at lea

this election season, there were two kinds of families that came up for severe public scrutiny, same-sex couples wanting to marry and single moms raising children. we talk about family life as though it were an entirely private matter. 2012 reminded us just how public some of our families are. i don't think i will ever forget the moment in the debate when it sounded like mr. romney was suggested that gun violence is directly caused by single parents. >> oh, yeah. when he said that, it was really interesting. i thought about columbine where you had these kids who actually had parents who both of the parents were in the home. presumably, they were the typical and healthy, quote, unquote, american family. so, yeah, this idea that the only families that can produce healthy children are those that have a mother and a father is really problematic. we have defied that over time we have had single mothers raising wonderful children. a study came out recently showing children of lesbians or gay couples are just as healthy if not more resilient than children from other families. >> there is a pretty subst

down, not up. so, obama got himself re-elected less strongly than four years ago and the republican house got itself re-elected? >>eric: what happens if republicans do cave and do sign on to higher taxes, what will you do? >>guest: well, the question is what the american people do if they see the republicans and democrats agreeing to raise taxes to pay if oh bum's bigger government then the republicans would be co-owners of what will be, unfortunately, a very unpleasant four years as all of obamacare falls on top of the heads of the american people, all of the regulations they have been delaying until after the election me begin to kick in, this is a lot of unpleasantness all delayed deliberately until after the election that will not be pleasant between now and the next four years and i don't think anyone wants it sign up to pay for all of the higherding a. >>eric: the if youly -- newly elected congress people and senate, are they signing on to your pledge at the frequency to which the prior elected folks have, the 2010 class? >>guest: well, 2010 was the high water mark but we are

in the last election in terms of fixing the programs. >> having said that, a lot of people say i paid into social security and i deserve that. i don't see how medicaid can hold out. i think that's going to collapse a lot sooner than any economist we be forecast. >> there's a good reason why i agree with you. that may be the fastest entitlement program. here is the reason why. not because it's bankrupting washington, because they have been for 15 years. the reason is because it's bankrupting the state. states pay about 40% of the cost and every governor that i talk to, they say that we can't afford this anymore. it is becoming the top of our budget. i agree with you. that could be the program that we fix first. charles: predent obama is in and more people want out. tens of thousands of people are signing petition to secede from the union. we have ron paul on the phone right now. it sounds like you have gotten behind this. you are the biggest name attached to this so far. why do you think this is a good idea? >> well, i haven't taken the positionthat this is a good idea, but the princip

sides of the aisle, in the wake of the 122012 election republicans realize americans want both sides to come up with solutions and the fiscal cliff is the first test of whether the two parties can work together. that includes the discussions that are occurring. as far as raising taxes, republicans will make a mistake if they agree do any proposal that raises taxes for the sake of raising taxes. this is a huge elephant in the room not being talked about and a goal republicans, a huge amount of loopholes and deductions in our tax code f the republicans grow to raise taxes on small business owner before we dress the listen holes and deductions and make the phrase "fair share" mean "fair share for everyone" they will run into problems. >> but the democrats may not be willing to accept that. to accept changes in the tax code. they may want the tax increases. the truth is, are the republicans in a no win situation because if they go over, if we go over the fiscal cliff, the democrats can just say it is the republicans who didn't compromise. >>guest: absolutely. president obama and his team

reality and this is the result of an election. it is significant. it's not only sacks b.chambliss. it's lindsey graham and he is most likely going to attract a primary challenger. this is not without risk but it's significant. it's not only the senators. you have senator coburn and saying it won't be terrible to raise taxes on the rich. i think we are starting to see a shift. the key is, is it just reductions or will some be willing to raise tax rates on the wealthy? that is going to be the real sticking point and ed, you heard what congressman king said. he said, look, it all has to be on the table. then you have speaker boehner saying that he wants obama care on the table in the fiscal cliff negotiations in reality will that be on the table, obama care in. >> you know, this is a a genius move by republicans. they wanted to repeal obama care. they would have done it had mitt romney been elected and they can't do that. boehner has said repealing it entirely is a moot issue. but getting some concessions is probably the way to do it. in part because there are democrats who agree that ch
the president won re-election over contender who said he would repeal obama care on day one, baner is boehner is like a dog with this bone. out front tonight, writer for the national review, political analyst role land martin and david frum, former adviser to george w. bush. you think the election is over. there are a lot of things can you argue about. a lot of victories can you score. but getting rid of obama care is something that was tabled in the election. >> i think that's fair. there are two pieces to this debate. one thing that is a huge contradiction and problem for republicans is this. the thing that they campaigned on, getting rid of the medicare savings in the obama care law, that's something that would actually make the deficit picture look a lot worse over the next ten years. that's obviously, you know, that cuts against this narrative. on the other hand, there are a lot of things about the obama care law that are going to be fiscal problems. for example, the law treats people who are on the exchanges really differently from it treats people who get insurance through the employer
on israeli security? >> i think it absolutely should. what we saw even before the election here in the united states is that netanyahu has said time and again even in the face of critics that there has been no stronger ally to israel than the united states. the criticism kept comincoming, though. after this incident, i really do think the critics will be quieted. there's a lot of talk about how successful the iron dome program wus was. it deflected over 80% of the rockets that were fired into israel. president obama has committed more funding to iron dome. and i think that it really does cement the fact that this president and this administration has been a tremendous friend and ally to israel and that is not going to change. >> looking to the future, amy, with egypt's mohamed morsi stepping in to broker the peace, does it show that the region no longer needs the u.s. to take the lead role? certainly secretary of state hillary clinton was there, but maybe not a lead role anymore in this type of negotiation. >> no, and in fact, the united states was very crucial to president morsi negotiating
they opened election day, shannon. >> thank you, anna. >> and this will probably be the last thanksgiving with large numbers of american combat troops in afghanistan. about 66,000 service members are still there and they celebrated thanksgiving with some of the holiday trappings of home. most americans troops are supposed to be out of the country by the end of 2014. the salvation army in canada says it's been overwhelmed by offers of help, following the theft of 2 million dollars for toys and donations and it's believed as many as 100,000 items are for the organizations to run a warehouse over a two year period. and a local toy company is donating $100,000 worth of toys and the salvation army in ottawa have been fired. of course donations like those here in america are like those tax deductible and with the u.s. approaching a fiscal cliff, there are rumblings of big changes and some could impact charity. the and here is the national correspondent tim angle. >> thanksgiving, a time to relish one's blessings and help the less fortunate. >> in the scramble to avoid the fiscal cliff, both the
elected president, morsey was. and now he, they believe, has become no different than mubarak. >> yesterday, the former assistant secretary of defense spoke out on what's happening there. >> president obama is really stuck now. that is is, he wants to court morsey but now that morsey is acting extra illegally, he he is almost forcing president obama to have to rebuke him publicly. and the question is whether president obama will do. so. >> >> we probably should have been quicker to reserve the praise. susan rice was the first one who spoke out immediately praising mohammed morsey. to charles krauthammer's point, it's the money that we hold power in all of this over a billion dollars a year goes to egypt. maybe that's something that the united states holds on to. s and congressman that want to defund egypt entirely. that money probably ought to be held back. >> they're the people once again making their demands. can you see from the videos here. >> looks like the arab spring, right? >> remember what happened in to your knowledge and spilled into egypt. this all started here an
. and i think the fact that it comes after the election and after occupy and occupy sandy, i think, was a big deal too. there was a little bit of a shift of how people are seeing labor and how people are seeing some of these whole sort of set of progressive ideas that some people said to quote lennon here, we're in the dust pan of history. maybe take them out of the garbage can and dust them off a bit, but far too early to proclaim victory. greg was clearly a highly educated, highly motivated guy. so many of the people who work there are really, i think, you know, much more on the edge, not people who know labor law very well. are not people who can afford in their personal lives to take that kind of a risk even if they believe it. so i think it's really, really hard. >> but even as -- you know, i didn't think of it until now, but the idea just as a media story, to have something that pictures americans as people other than these cows just storming in -- the thing i hate about the black friday is the way the media uses it as proof, well, this is the american consumer. and walmart a
